Is it the Christmas Rush? Anyone stressed??

Oh my goodness friends! I have to share my funny husband this morning…So he gets a little stressed when I schedule up our day, especially on Saturdays. But this Saturday is special right?? It’s the day before Christmas Eve, technically the last shopping day for us because tomorrow is Sunday and I don’t shop on Sunday.

So he wanted to do a couple things today: he wanted to go to the mall :/ I knew he would have a difficult time cause of the day and season (he said he wanted to get me a surprise because a few days ago I kind of explained it’s more fun to have a surprise present instead of knowing everything I’m getting for Christmas…let’s be honest I’M THE ONE THAT PICKED IT ALL OUT LOL) So he headed out to get me a surprise…this doesn’t end well you know that right?? 😉

He just got back from the store and is freaking mad! (I warned him to eat breakfast before he left, but did he listen to me…nooooo). Apparently there were some people cutting him off in traffic which might be normal today as there is still a lot of construction on one of our major highways and a ton of people on the road. The only saving grace is there is no snow yet. He came home and is telling me about his excursion and his voice is raising and his face is turning red….and I just start laughing uncontrollably cause he is FREAKING OUT! and I knew he should’ve ate! While laughing I tell him to please eat before he has a stroke…

So be safe out there friends! It’s Christmas Eve eve and many people are shopping at the last minute, which might be that they didn’t have enough money before or whatever reason. Let’s be kind to each other and keep the spirit of Christmas no matter our situation.

And let us not forget, I have a holiday outfit today to match the movie Jumanji! We are going to Jumanji tonight and I wanted to have fun with the jungle theme! I paired my Express sequin leggings to a OldNavy camo jacket and have fun that way because I’m not a party girl but show others you can wear sequins at any time and make it fun!

Am I Wearing Too Much Red??

Hello Friends!

Happy Friyay!

Oh my goodness I’m super excited for this weekend and for my color choice lately!

First tonight! Hubs and I are accompanying his sister and her husband to the new Star Wars movie! I can hardly wait! I’ve been a Star Wars fan since I was a wee lass! haha actually Mark Hamill/Harrison Ford fan really. I continued to be a Harrison Ford fan after Star Wars because I think he is a great actor and really versatile but I’ve really only seen Mark Hamill in Star Wars (I did see an odd “The Night the Lights went out in Georgia”? Somebody correct me if I’m wrong, that was a forgettable movie in my opinion. But I’m super stoked for Star Wars tonight (I’m wearing my Star Wars shirt (right??) and something else fun…I will post a pic).

Then tomorrow night hubs and I are going with some good friends to Kurt Bestor concert in Salt Lake City. I’m going to wear my  Tracee Ellis Ross red velvet dress with a really sparkly necklace and my fun Libby Edelman pumps all from JCPenney!

Today at work I’m wearing a leopard shirt (Calvin Klein-Macys), patterned pants (Target, ANewDay), black booties (JCPenney, A.N.A.) and my red faux fur jacket (H&M) and yesterday I wore Gap jeans, a red Old Navy sweater underneath a red/pink/blue plaid flannel shirt with a pink purse. The day before I wore my black Express embroidered dress with jeans, black booties and my red faux fur jacket again. I’m noticing that I wear a LOT OF RED!! Does anyone else notice this odd phenomenon? Ha ha ha! Red is the appropriate color of the season, how can I help if I have a crap ton of red that I love in my closet?? Anyone that does not like this raise your hand…..still waiting….no hands? That’s good because DUDE I LOVE RED! Gotta represent my personality and wear the red!

Shop your closet!!

Happy Tuesday Friends!

I love finding new ways to wear my clothes. I don’t like to wear the same thing every day but at the same time, it is not reasonable for me to buy something new to wear every day! I’m sure others know what I mean 🙂 So I just love when I’m looking at my closet and some new combination pops into my mind.

I had this happen today! I have a wonderful, colorful, pair of floral pants that I snagged on clearance from Loft early last spring. They have such a vibrant background color (it’s kind of a jeweled blue) with sea green vines and rose and gold flowers…it’s one of my favorite patterns but I’ve only wore these in warm weather. The cuff of the pants is shorter (normally paired with fun heels or flips) but I paired these pants with my burgundy sueded booties-DSW, my gray ruffle sleeve sweater from Target-WhoWhatWear, and my new Betsy Johnson pendant I snagged from TJMAXX. The pants are so vibrant, it’s sort of a holiday look! Score!

I love this pendant and finding another way to wear it just puts me in a splendid mood, which really helps out my week cause let’s be honest…it’s only Tuesday…the work week is just beginning and I need a little help to move it along typically. I don’t think I’m the only one in this boat either! Mondays and Tuesdays are a challenge right? So have some fun and shop your closet! Find new ways to mix and match items in your closet different than you have before!

Sparkle Season!

Hello friends!

Here we are almost through the week! How is everyone doing? I am just in a cheery mood, I don’t know where it’s coming from…oh yes I do! I spent the evening shopping with my mom, dad, sister, two nieces (niece’s two little girls). We really had fun and I seriously found the cutest two pieces of jewelry.

We were roaming through the mall forever and I was still dressed from work, wearing my black booties which are super comfy but not necessarily meant to roam the mall 😉 hahaha (I should store flat shoes in my trunk for mall roaming)!

Anyway, we were in Maurice’s looking for a gift for someone and I happened to find a lovely watch/bracelet double wrap thingy (I’m seriously not sure what to call it) but it’s super fun (cheap, hope that doesn’t sound bad) and totally matches my style! Score!

Then I had to fuel up at Chik Fil A- grilled nuggets and lemonade heaven. Is there anything better than Chik Fil A lemonade? Ok I digress…

We then moved on down the road to TJMAXX because it’s always a good place to snag a deal for gifts right? But I “accidentally” found a bootiful pendant from Betsy Johnson and it’s amazing, so I’m super stoked that I got these bargain finds that add to my sparkle season! I’m a sucker for something pretty and sparkly! I’m going to wear this pendant with my gray Madewell shirt, maybe my leopard jeans, and pink/gold sparkle blazer. A girl’s gotta bling….again and again….

And there’s more! We then went to another mall to JCPenney and wandered into Sephora inside the store. My sister showed me a Stila display and we spent nearly 15 minutes swiping (lipgloss wand type of containers) of glitter eyeshadow on our wrists! I didn’t buy any but I think it’s on my (Christmas) stocking list. I found it online, it’s called Magnificient Metals!

SPARKLE SEASON IS UPON US, JUMP ON THE BANDWAGON WITH ME (or else I’m going down alone Muahahaha)!
